Reiki - In Reiki, healing takes place on an emotional, spiritual and physical level. The practitioner focuses on the recipient's chakra systems. Sometimes, imbalances are due to physical ailments. Other times, they may be related to some sort of emotional or spiritual issue that the person hasn’t resolved yet, such as relationship issues, problems at work, etc. By transferring Reiki energy into the recipient, the practitioner may help the individual work through issues at hand. Reiki practitioners may practice techniques to clear the chakras - making use of hand placements around the body. Nearly all the treatments are performed without any physical touching. Making use of their body as a conduit, the energy healer will send positive energy inside and take the negative energy out. Reiki is known to also be beneficial to those dealing with chronic pain.
